East Asia updates: Special 2018 annual edition


Published 30 January 2018 | 1 minute read

This report by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) breaks down East Asia’s economic performance for 2017.

It concludes that 2017 was a good year for most East Asian countries, as almost all countries recorded higher year-to-date gross domestic product (GDP) growth compared to the average achieved in the past 3 years. Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan recorded the largest pickup compared to average growth achieved in the past 3 years. The report also provides a 2018 outlook and discusses what downside risks the region is facing in the near future.
